    Hey folks,

    I have a few days in New Orleans next week. It's a professional meeting but I'll definitely have some walk around camera time. I want a really minimal kit. The choices are:

    Q with the 8.5 mm

    E-PM1 or E-PL5 body with the 14 2.5, the 15 8, the 17 2.8, the 45 1.8.

    I love the Q for it's size but the m43 bodies will be better for evening shots. I'm completely undecided.

    I'd take one of the Olys with a pair of of them being the excellent 45mm
  3. I was in New Orleans about two years ago.. The French quarter at night fast lens, iso 1600 or so. I was using my x100 and there were times I need to go to 3200... But most cases 800 to 1600 was good enough. I would bring the m43 w/ 14, 17 and 45. Too bad u don't have the 20, that would be the lens I would leave on the body... Most of my shots were between 28 and 50 while I was there.
